David H. Binkley '71, an LVC music education graduate who received the Master of Sacred Music degree from New York City’s Union Theological Seminary School of Sacred Music, was recently honored at Camp Hill Presbyterian Church on his 40th anniversary as the church’s Organist/Choirmaster.

Binkley’s primary responsibilities at the church include music teaching in the Sunday Church school for children (Kindergarten – Grade 5), direction of three singing choirs--Middle School (grades 5 – 8), Kirk (grades 6-12 and adults), and Sanctuary (adults), coordination of the church’s Music, Art & Drama Series, and staff support with Pastor David Roquemore for the church’s Worship & Fine Arts Ministry of Session.

A new 39 rank Schantz organ was installed in the church in 2008 after a major renovation of the building. The church regularly presents organ recitals featuring concert artists. There is also a monthly luncheon and 30 minute organ concert featuring members of The Harrisburg Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.

As an active member of the American Guild of Organists and the Presbyterian Association of Musicians, Binkley has played organ recitals and presented church music workshop throughout the Central PA area. His primary organ teachers have been Robert Clippinger, Karl Moyer, Pierce Getz, and Robert Baker.

In 1996 Mr. Binkley was awarded Certified Church Musician status by the Presbyterian Association of Musicians and he holds the Colleague certificate from the American Guild of Organists.
